Picked some up from Janns Netcraft a while ago.

Makes a nice jig but it's not bucktail for sure.

More action, nice shape but I found it looked matted towards the head.

Think both have their place.

Hope this helps.

I think the craft hair is good for freshwater jigs. I got some Punisher hair for float and fly jigs and it works fine for that. But saltwater bucktails is a whole 'nother thing and IMO craft hair won't last long in that environment. I'd order a calf tail from Jann's or Cableas, etc for bucktail jigs. The hair is longer, thicker and will be much more durable.
